Protective Health Codes 

PHC ImagesBoth the Arkansas Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, & Refrigeration (HVAC/R) Board and the State Committee of Plumbing Examiners established and administer the Arkansas Mechanical, Plumbing & Gas Codes, which represents the minimum standards for installation, alteration, and repair of mechanical and plumbing equipment and systems.

The agency employs/certifies inspectors responsible for performing inspections in designated areas of the state and licenses plumbers, plumbing inspectors, HVAC/R contractors and mechanical inspectors.

Our Mission

To protect and serve the citizens of Arkansas by establishing standards for design, proper installation, and inspection of plumbing, natural gas, air conditioning, refrigeration systems, and by establishing minimum qualification requirements for persons installing such systems.

Vision Statement

It is the vision of the Division of Protective Health Codes to promulgate a comprehensive and compatible regulatory environment for both plumbing and mechanical systems, through consistent performance-based regulations that are effective, efficient and meet industry and public needs.
